    The first of the Shellenberger family, Ulrick
    Shellenberger, came to West Hempfield township
    from the southern part of Germany in 1726, and en-
    gaged in farming. Mrs. Elizabeth R. (Shellenber-
    ger) Mellinger was'born in this township, a daugh-
    ter of Jacob and Elizabeth (Rohrer) Shellenberger,
    who both died on the old homestead. The father was
    a farmer, and was sixty-seven years of age at the time
    of his death in 1878, and the mother died in 1886,
    aged eighty-one years, both in the faith of the Dunk-
    ard (German Baptist) Church, and their remains
    were interred in the Habecker church cemetery. The
    children born to the imion of Jacob and Elizabeth
    (Rohrer) Shellenberger were, in the order of birth.
